UPDATE: New link from Syracuse News

UTICA, N.Y. -- A Cicero man who posted bloody photos of his dead 17-year-old girlfriend after he killed her and then tried to kill himself has been charged with her murder, Utica police said Monday night.

Brandon Andrew Clark, 21, was charged with second-degree murder, a class A-1 felony punishable up to 25 years in state prison, police said.

Clark is accused of slitting the throat of Bianca Devins, killing her Sunday morning.

He then cut his throat in front of police officers and took a selfie, police have said.

Clark posted photos of Devins’s bloody body and himself online, kicking off a firestorm of online posts, comments and coverage.

Utica police said they responded to Poe Street in Utica after Clark called 911, and made “incriminating statements” and implied he was going to harm himself.

As police arrived, Clark stabbed himself in the neck. He then lay down across a green tarp near a black SUV, police said.

Officers noticed hair protruding from under the tarp and asked where Devins was. Clark told the officers she was under the tarp. He then pulled out a cell phone and took photos of himself lying across the dead teen, police said.

Clark struggled briefly with police before he was taken into custody on Sunday. He was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries to his neck, police have said.

On Monday, police interviewed Clark and charged him with Devins’s murder, police said.

Clark and Devins had been dating for two to three months, police said the Devins’ family told investigators. They met on Instagram, police said, and communicated online. Their relationship progressed into a “personally intimate one” and they spent time together, meeting each others’ families, police have said.

On Saturday, the pair had planned to go to a concert together in New York City, and police said it is believed they attended that event, arriving around 7:30 p.m. They left and drove back to Utica sometime after 10 p.m., when some argument occurred between them, police have said.

The argument continued. Clark took out a large, black-handled knife, which police say he used to kill Devins.

Police have said Clark took and distributed photographs of Devins’s body on an online messaging platform. From there, images from Devins’ grisly death quickly spread on the Internet.

Clark was arraigned Monday on the murder charge. Police said he is now “in the custody of the Oneida County Correctional Facility.” It is unclear if he has been released from a hospital or is being guarded there.

WARNING: Some of the links here may contain graphic images of the victim

This story made me sick to my stomach that there are a lot of people online that spent majority of their lives being anti-social and unmarried and then they find a cute girl online thinking they can be in a relationship. But this guy..... went all out finding her address and killed her! Chopped her head off and posted them on his Discord and Instagram!

The worst part, a lot of incels stated that she deserved it because she was gaining popular and was attracting losers online. I repeat NO ONE DESERVE THIS!

I will NOT link to the killers instagram account, he does not deserve any recognition

Police are still investigating the murder, however, some online users have already tracked the killer, he's still alive and hiding.

This story was also reported locally in Utica, NY

Yea, I saw this. He done a pretty lousy job filtering that picture out.

Discord in general is pretty seedy. People seem to drop their guard and get overly personal in their bubbles.

Never ever give anyone their location and always remain hidden. Sad to hear about this.

I don't think we need any pictures posted here with more details than the one in OP.

From what I gather, this was done by a long time family friend?

@davillain-: The guy that killed her was her boyfriend. I'm sure he knew where she lived, etc. But good advice otherwise.

I know many bitches be dumb, but its not like this chick cut his dick off or anything.

To me, things said online are meaningless and don't mean nothing. Its why I don't feel people should be fired for saying something on Twitter.

That's uhhh...about the dumbest thing I've read in a while.

You are responsible for your speech on the internet just as much as you are any other medium. This isn't opinion, it's law.

What is wrong with people, seriously?

Jesus... people these days on the internet and social media.

That screenshot is poorly edited, looks very gruesome and can visualize what it looks like without the blur.

I don't know any country that doesn't have laws against threatening statements, libel and slander.

United States. Threatening speech is highly protected in a number of areas, including stating intention to murder someone (my state is one of those), while libel and slander can be incredibly difficult to prove in court depending on how it's worded.

In which state is it legal to say that you intend to murder someone?

Involuntary Celibate. Basically, boys with no class who can't get laid and blame girls for all their problems in life.

Some really messed up people out there. What's scary is the fact that they were in a relationship for months, so this was no stranger. I wonder if she had any idea how crazy this guy is.

Thanks. on wikipedia states that there were many murder cases and even mass murders can be linked to this incel thing. Damn I sometimes heard it but never took interest but definitely a very dangerous emotional state.

I bet "incel" extremism is more common in America. If we would only legalize prostitution. Fucking religion and moral police.

Everything I have seen says "not really," with the caveat that the ones who do exist feel freer to act. But, for the most part, it's just internet trolls being internet trolls.

I a lot of incels seek romantic affection and think they're entitled to it. Not something you can get from prostitutes.

Well it's also what people call the MGTOW people (who can still have sex) as an insult. So it's not as simple anymore. In fact I've seen people on here throw the insult around at people they disagree with, to indicate they are bad people.

What makes it worse is that people who are involuntarily not finding a sex life are not necessarily bad people. It's just another form of harassment.
